Being married on a beach can be an ultimate romantic experience. Celebrating your marriage reception afterward in a grand manner, like in a luxury villa on St. John in the US Virgin Islands is nothing less than a dream for a couple.
St. John is a gorgeous island, in the Caribbean. Along with St. Croix and St. Thomas, the three make up the US Virgin Islands. St John is known for its abundance of tropical flora, from gigantic mahogany trees to hibiscus flowers. The year-round pleasant weather of St. John makes it ideal for planning a wedding at any time of year.
St. John is among the most coveted wedding destinations worldwide. Couples travel far in order to relax on the peaceful, white sand beaches in the USVI National Park, like Trunk Bay, Maho and Cinnamon Bay beaches. Because of the national park, St John is a tranquil place preserved for its natural splendor. Arriving to the island can get rid of any travel or pre-marriage jitters. When you step off the ferry onto the dock in Cruz Bay, after the sea air has blown through your hair and you smell the fresh saltwater surrounding you, it’s easy to quickly forget about the “fast paced real world” you might have left behind for a few days.
Beach weddings at St. John are renowned worldwide, and are the ideal place for starting on a new chapter in your life with your partner. Opting for a beach such as Trunk Bay, your marriage can be celebrated in splendor again and again on the island if you choose to return to the special destination for anniversaries
It is not just the natural splendor and world famous beaches that attract couples to St. John for weddings. There are additional, top-quality wedding services such as excellent catering, restaurants, photographers and wedding planners. There are a number of villas, from small to gigantic, and a two luxury resorts for you to find comfort as well as activities for your wedding party. There are diverse catering services and gourmet eateries on each one of the Coral Bay as well as the Cruz Bay ends. Having a range of cuisines offered from local caterers, restaurants and private chefs also means it’s easy to find something that appeals to everyone.
If you’re considering St. John for a wedding, you may want to take time to contact a local wedding planner. The excellent services and arrangements you desire can be managed with ease when you hire a local professional. They have lots of experience living and coordinating weddings on the island. They will assist you in negotiating with the other vendors and suggest accommodations and activities to suit your preferences. They are also familiar with details as well as extras that you had not considered and will also remind you and assist you in taking care of all logistics.
Finally, St. John is a US territory, so traveling can be much smoother than if you were to go to another country. Though it’s easiest to travel with a US Passport, it’s not necessary. A birth certificate and driver’s license will also do the trick.
If you’re looking for luxury, raw beauty and solitude for your wedding, consider St. John. It’s small enough to be off-the-beaten track and yet exclusive enough to be flocked to year around.
